    Well they'll have to flog their patents then.

    Can we expect to see the cabling arm etc... spun off? hope not.

    Norfolk LEA's structured cabling partner/preffered supplier is Elonex.

    They have got a patent listed since 1997 though so old technology

    Microsoft got hit for $521million over the Eolas patent. That was filed in 1994. Somewhat ironically, we will be having the implications of the patent litgation of the Microsoft vs Eolas lawsuit hitting our WSUS servers this very month.
